Voting will be open through Nov. 23

Catherine Mann

The International Business School's Catherine Mann has been nominated for the Economist Intelligence Unit's (EIU) Business Professor of the Year Award. A division of The Economist, the EIU says the award aims to recognize and reward great business teaching and is open to business professors worldwide. Online voting runs through November 23 at the EIU website. 

Before joining IBS, Mann spent 20 years working in policy institutions and think tanks in Washington DC, including the Institute for International Economics and the President's Council of Economic Advisers at the White House. She is the adviser of the new IBS student chapter of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE), and focuses her research on international trade and the global economy. She speaks regularly about economic issues on CNN, PBS NewsHour and other major media outlets.

The EIU says that Mann's nomination came from an anonymous Brandeis student. The award winner will receive the title of Professor of the Year and a $100,000 prize. After voting ends, an expert panel will select a shortlist of four professors who will be part of a live "teach-off" in London in March, with each faculty member giving a short lecture on a subject of their choice.
